We went on a rainy Saturday and the place was packed. There were even lines to try the samples . The tour and samples are free . Tour leaders were very informative and enthusiastic. Fun activity for locals and visitors.

Thought we'd kill some time on a rainy afternoon - don't be discouraged by the drive in trying to find this place. You get to drive by garbage recycling etc. Once you get there you are met by some warm and friendly folks. Their story...More

We were looking for something fun to do without a lot of expense and this fit the bill. The staff was fabulous! The tour was interesting and funny and educational! Worth the effort to find the place (not centrally located).

I would put this out there as the finest distillery tour and tasting room in the USA. In addition, their spirits, rum, spiced rum, vodka, and bourbon (yes bourbon outside of Kentucky!) are superb! The spirits are handcrafted in small batches using locally sourced ingredients...More

The tour is very informative. The rum is DELICIOUS! They have a barrel aged rum and it's not always available. It's worth the buy! I live in Indianapolis and I'm going to look into having it shipped there when it's available. The toasted coconut is...More
